Mayday Mikey Ventured out to the Dog Tracks south of Texas to go hang out with some of our local drifting buddies as veteraned drift organizer, Aaron Losey hosted yet another Texas event. Aaron, like anyone who has a passion, continues to host and promote drifting in Texas no matter how small or large the event may be. That, is Commendable. This event in particular was the prelude to the Mexican standoff which is the 2nd round of the Lonestar Drift Series. More information about this event can be found HERE

A couple of our friends were venturing all the way from Louisiana to drift on Texas soil and get their practice on, so out went Mikey to rep Mayday and say whats up to our Local Drifters and Louisiana folk. DavidD lent Mikey the ol’ D700, gave him a crash course in panning, and sent him on his way to shoot drift for his first time. And I must say, Mikey did a pretty damn good job equipped only with a 50mm 1.4 and some swift David Do training.

Event Coverage: Fabricated Motorsports’ The Mexican Standoff.

A Mexican standoff is a slang term defined as a stalemate or impasse, a confrontation that neither side can forseeably win. In popular culture, the Mexican standoff is usually portrayed as three or more opponents with guns drawn and ready, creating a tense situation. Neither side is willing to shoot for fear of being shot in return, yet neither side wants to relinquish its weapons for fear that its opponents will shoot them. This situation forces the participants to resolve the situation either by diplomacy, surrender, or a pre-emptive strike.

Everything IS bigger in Texas. That includes Carbon wings.

Event Coverage Preview: The Mexican Standoff.

As I’m writing this on my way back from Mineral Wells, TX in DFan’s comfy 4 door civic, I can’t help but think how dedicated a lot of Texas Drifters are. I bitch and moan about a 5 hour drive to a sleepy town that nobody has heard of, but these guys not only make that same drive, but they also wrench on their cars all the way up to the last minute for these drift events held by Fabricated Motorsports. These guys are pretty serious when it comes to making these events, and this event was no different.
